NFL Notebook: Johnson will be in camp despite ankle problem

Associated Press
The NFL notebook …
CINCINNATI ó Receiver Chad Johnson said he’ll report on time for the Cincinnati Bengals’ training camp next weekend, but his surgically repaired ankle will probably prevent him from fully participating.
Johnson also said in a phone interview Monday that he wants to move on from his failed attempt to maneuver a trade. He had threatened to sit out the season if he wasn’t dealt, but the Bengals refused to trade him, turning down an offer from Washington before the draft in April.
“People take it in a different context when I say I want out and I’m not happy,” Johnson said. “They think, ‘He doesn’t want to be in Cincinnati anymore, he’s dissing us as fans.’ It’s not like that. I love my fans. I wasn’t able to get that point across. They’ve supported me. They’ve been good to me, and I’ve been good to them.
“I was going through a situation where I felt a change was needed. It didn’t work out. Hey, I’m back. Get ready for the show.”
PANTHERS
CHARLOTTEó The Carolina Panthers signed third-round draft pick Charles Godfrey and seventh-rounder Geoff Schwartz on Monday, leaving them with only two unsigned draft choices.
TITANS
NASHVILLE, Tenn. ó The Tennessee Titans have agreed to terms on a multiyear contract with rookie defensive end William Hayes.
Hayes was a fourth-round draft pick out of Winston-Salem State.
EAGLES
PHILADELPHIA ó Wide receiver DeSean Jackson and the Philadelphia Eagles agreed on a four-year contract Sunday night, leaving only one draft pick unsigned by the team on the eve of training camp.
